Haven’t tried out Dragon’s Dogma on console before? The game released back in 2013 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 where it received a decent 80/100 score on Metacritic – though it was crippled with technical issues (lag and frame rates).
These issues are now reportedly fixed in the PC port, which also boasts high-resolution 4K support and 60fps. Fans of the series should consider supporting the port, as Capcom has essentially spelled out that a Dragon’s Dogma sequel potential hinges on how well the port is received commercially.
If you’re looking for a bigger price cut on Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen for the PC, we’d suggest checking back in about 2-3 months as that’s usually the timeframe when ports starts receiving larger discounts.
